A concept rendering of Rapunzel, demonstrating...

After she received a Rapunzel wig as a gift, I found myself saying to my daughter, “Avery, you have to put away your hair now.” –Heather, mother of 2

My three-year-old son has an unusually long tongue. When we were driving home from church one day, I looked in the rear view mirror then said, “Carter! Get your tongue out of your nose!” –Ryan, father of 3

I said to one of my kids, “No fudge until you finish your doughnut!” Just call me Super Nutrition Mom! -Leslie, mother of 4
